      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Hero (UTG+1): 100 BB
      MP: 73.1 BB
      MP+1: 105.1 BB
      CO: 98.9 BB
      BTN: 104.2 BB
      SB: 100 BB
      BB: 177.7 BB
      UTG: 128.1 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has Q:spade: A:club:

      UTG calls 1 BB, Hero raises to 4 BB, fold, fold, CO calls 4 BB, fold, fold, BB calls 3 BB, UTG calls 3 BB

      Flop: ($1.65, 4 players) Q:club: 8:diamond: T:club:
      BB checks, UTG checks, Hero bets 10.4 BB, fold, fold, UTG calls 10.4 BB

      Turn: ($3.73, 2 players) J:spade:
      UTG bets 18 BB, Hero calls 18 BB

      River: ($7.33, 2 players) 4:club:
      UTG checks, Hero checks

      UTG is a fish with 50/15 VPIP/PFR. Am I allowed to give up on the turn? Should I call? Or push?
      As the flush draw arrives on the river, I see no value in betting, as the only worse hand which would call me might be AJ.

      Against a fish I'd make it at least potsize here.

      Bet something like 13bb on the flop - a lot of draws and weaker made hands that could call.

      I think we have quite an easy fold on the turn. Board is super dry, a lot of two pair/straight combos and there aren't really any river cards that we would like.

      As played on the turn, checking back the river is fine.
